Monday night - I noticed our neighbor girl was wearing a beautiful skirt, she must have been going somewhere important. The next day, as we passed on the path I told her she looked awesome in that skirt. She was puzzled by my compliment. It was random but I think the best compliments are unexpected.
Tuesday - I stopped for free curly fries at Arby's. What? I'm pregnant, I can do that. The cashier referred me to the manager who never once tried to make me feel silly for coming in for free fries and nothing else. In fact, she went out of her way to smile. She looked me directly in the eye and smiled as she took my order. She smiled as she went to pick up the fries, she looked down at the receipt to catch my name that her associate had written down, and then smiled as she handed them to me and told me by name to have a nice day. I couldn't resist, I told her she had a very beautiful smile. She made my day brighter.
Random compliments and smiles at strangers are beautiful gestures that make our world a happier place.
